Album


Pygmalion is the third studio album by English rock band Slowdive, released on 6 February 1995 by record label Creation. It was the final Slowdive album to be released before the band disbanded in 1995. A departure from their previous two albums, Pygmalion incorporated a more experimental sound tilted towards ambient electronic music, with sparse, atmospheric arrangements. All compositions were by Neil Halstead. Lyrics on tracks Miranda and Visions of LA were by Rachel Goswell. Pygmalion is Slowdive's third album, released on February 6th, 1995. Pygmalion is widely recognized as a severe departure from the band's previous work. The album has a much more bleak and damaged approach than Just For a Day or Souvlaki. On this album Slowdive uses a wide array of different electronic effects and a heavier focus on clean guitar tones. The cover illustration features imagery from Rainer Wehinger's graphic notation for György Ligeti's work Artikulation 1958. Songs in album Slowdive - Pygmalion 1995. Slowdive - Rutti. Slowdive - Crazy For You. Slowdive - Miranda. Slowdive - Trellisaze. Slowdive - Cello. Slowdive - J's Heaven. Slowdive - Visions Of La. Pygmalion is the most abstract of Slowdive's albums after moving from the sugary pop of Just for a Day to the more mature and more experimental Souvlaki, the band began to incorporate even more elements of ambient electronica - drum loops, samples, and songs even less tangible than on previous releases. Album 1995 21 Songs. Alternative 1995. is Slowdives third studio album. It was released in 1995 through record label Creation. It was their last album before they disbanded in 1995. It is generally preceived that the album was the bands most experimental, incorporating, for example, ambient electronic music with minimal atmospheric arrangements. Pygmalion Q&A.

#00085 reporting in. Can confirm there is distortion at the beginning of the first song for like 30 seconds or so. Sounds great and looks very nice, although it came with a bend in the top left corner and a split in the top middle seam. VMP shipping strikes again...
Uleran
Unfortunately, mine has several passages of the good old steady CLICKING ("click... click... click...") throughout, which is absolutely a non-starter for me. I e-mailed VMP and they said they were completely sold out of their stock on this, so I was extremely disappointed, as you might imagine. I guess the MOV edition is going to be the way to go.
Kirizius
Is this reissue a bit hipstery? Yes. Does it sound good? Yes. Very dynamic, deep lows and shrill highs. Very little surface noise and an occasional pop here and there - so what? Does it look great? Yes.Altogether a very nice limited edition pressing that looks and sounds amazing. What's not to like?
Wild Python
great sound quality. however there are still some small pops at certains songs.
JoJolar
The sound on this good. Very dynamic. Comparison to other recent reissue by MOV - MOV slightly edges this one out. Really just cause of the marbles vinyl tendency toward surface noise; and I say this with my copy sounding pretty dang good. No matter what “others” say and regardless of wet cleaning (which I do), new poly sleeves (check), constant needle cleaning between albums (which I don’t do and is debatably harmful for your stylus), or whatever doomsday prepping you want to do for your records, there are just some records that have surface noise - it comes with the format. This seems to be one of them. But happy to have this. Pick it up if you can, but when you can get an MOV copy for $30 or less, I wouldn’t pay the mark up for this unless your collector boner won’t subside upon hearing “limited”, “colored”, “half-speed remastered”, or “foil stamped”. Of course, if you conceived your first child while listening to this album and subsequently named them “Pygmalion”, then you MUST have this. Upon receipt of a birth certificate showing said name, I will sell you my copy at cost. … My last name is Control No my first name ain't baby It's Janet Miss Jackson if you're nasty…

They’re all digitally sourced if the records are cut by Music on Vinyl, as they can only cut DMM from digital at usuallly 192khz or 96khz, 24 bit. The ones that may be analog sourced are usually using existing metalwork from previous issues. Of course, if the master is digital, then it does not really matter.
Survivors
I don’t think that’s accurate about MOV, they’re all sourced from the master recordings supplied by the label. Surely there are some that are digitally sourced because the masters are digital but I’ve not seen any proof they’re all digitally sourced. My beef with MOV is that they just bypass artists and go only through the label to get their licenses.
Arcanefire
I’ve heard that argument about MOV and, while the purist in me totally agrees, quality sound is quality sound regardless of provenance.
Ynonno
haha, very funny review. I am entertained : ) I have the first edition and was really impressed with the sound quality of this VMP press.Slight surface noise seems to be the common problem of colored vinyl. I don't buy MOV reissue as all MOV presses are digital-sourced.
Mardin
Sounds perfect, crystal-clear throughout, and looks gorgeous. Sounds much better than my 1995 copy.
Conjuril
My pressing sounds great albeit its not entirely perfect. Some surface noise and pops and clicks here and there, but nevertheless happy with it.
Zieryn
I can hear notes on this pressing that I didn’t hear on the prior reissue. I’ve never heard an OG copy but this pressing sounds incredible, epic, and essential. Love the cover art variant too. A silver shine to this silver hued album. A must buy.
Nettale
My copy sounds perfect. Love this reissue, but it would have been nice to at least get some liner notes or something. Hopefully we get proper reissues of "Just For a Day" and "Souvlaki" very soon.
Uylo
Mine sounds absolutely perfect except there’s a repeated skip halfway through the first side. Anyone else experience that?
Froststalker
Mine sounds great but there's some weird distortion on the first track of side 2 in a couple of places.
Wenaiand
my copy sounds great. i wasn't totally worried but it's good to finally have a top notch real reissue.
Galanjov
Disappointing that mine has a lot of surface noise cause I see a lot of 5 star ratings
Madi
That’ll be GZ coloured vinyl for you. Always roulette. Some people get lucky but there are always plenty of bad copies. People use them because they’re cheap not because they’re good.
Cherry The Countess
Try cleaning it. Meanwhile I'll add 7 more words here
BORZOTA
I notice surface noise on pretty much all marbled vinyl. Sure, that may sound ridiculous to some and I don't pretend to understand why, but it's something I've heard with my own two ears.
